Innovation in Design—The housekeeping staff of Adelphi uses Green Seal© products for all cleaning needs. These products are recycled from waste paper, newspapers, and magazines, have had the contaminants removed, and are safe for the environment. Adelphi University exclusively uses natural, organic techniques to maintain the flora of the campus. In our efforts to maintain a green campus, all use of petroleum-based chemical fertilizers has been eliminated, as have chemical herbicides, fungicides, and pesticides.

As part of the project all Green Guard systems furniture and seating was installed, a green building education program including signage and Adelphi University Web site links to the green attributes of the buildings, and a LEED AP coordinator was utilized throughout all design and construction
phases.
